    1. 1
      Peel the papaya, de-seed and slice thinly. Add to a medium bowl and toss with the lemon juice and sugar to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to sit over night in refrigerator.
    2. 2
      The following day, add the mixture to a mortar and pound to a paste or purée in a food processor. Transfer to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Continue cooking until all the moisture has evaporated, then spoon into hot, sterilized canning jars and seal with lids and rings.
    3. 3
      Allow to cool to room temperature, and refrigerate any jars that do not seal. Store in a cool, dark cupboard.

      This was great! And I'm so glad I didn't have to add pectin. I took some liberties with the recipe - I had 6 small-medium papayas, used juice from 3 limes, and about 1 1/4 cup sugar. It turned out great, just the right consistency and delicious. Thanks!!
